Ready Set Ride is a therapy barn for children with disabilities. We also educate the community about the need for special needs individuals to have a place where they and their family do not feel judged. It all started with one horse, a little girl, and a dream. Now the dream has become hope for so many!
We have eleven horses who provide therapy and more than 80 volunteers a week who help care for the horses and participate in the sessions. We have over 50 riders a week who come for an hour to enjoy freedom from a wheelchair, freedom from a walker, wind blowing through their hair, and riding a horse JUST like everyone else!
It is with heavy hearts, though, that we share with our friends and family that our barn will have to close without a miracle. We've paid rent for over 15 years, but have now been put in a position where our landlord, who is in bankruptcy, has no desire to work with us. He wants us out. We need YOUR help to make this petition spread far and wide so people know that we are being evicted from our property on July 17th.
While normally people might not be so hopeful, we've seen miracles happen with our riders, volunteers, and the community we are a part of, and we DO have hope! Please sign this petition to urge the bank to allow Ready Set Ride to buy the property instead of being evicted.
Check out our Go Fund Me to help us raise the funds needed to buy the property.
Ready Set Ride has been making a difference in the lives of individuals with physical, emotional, and developmental challenges through equine assisted activities since 2001. Read Set Ride is a 501 (c)(3) non-profit that operates mostly on donations and depends on our hundreds of volunteers to run our program.
We will have news stations out as soon as Friday, but until then, spread the word that YOU WANT READY SET RIDE TO STAY. Sign and share this petition!
If you should know of anyone with a legal background in property/tenant law PLEASE reach out to us!!!! 815-439-3659. Miracles DO happen at Ready Set Ride and may this be our MIRACLE PETITION.
Due to the overwhelming support we have received from YOU we have started a GoFundMe. We have secured representation and our goal is to be able to purchase our current property IF that becomes possible or new land near by where our program can continue to flourish being a part of the community! No matter what happens, these funds will be used to help with our legal fees, property needs or moving the horses.
